Separate Is Never Equal: Sylvia Mendez and Her Family's Fight for Desegregation - Duncan Tonatiuh

Seven years before Brown v. Board of Education, the family of Sylvia Mendez worked to bring an end to segregation in California’s schools. Inspired by interviews with Sylvia Mendez and with the use of actual dialogue from court transcripts, Pura Belpré winner Duncan Tonatiuh relates the dramatic efforts of the Mendez family to make known to all of California that Separate is Never Equal (Abrams, $18.95). Codex-style drawings with digital collage and double-page spreads heighten the intensity of this little-known, but very relevant, story of civil rights. Ages 7-11. Mary Alice Garber
